New Mexico Wildfires Cause Evacuations at Los Alamos National Laboratory

30 structures burn in Las Conchas fire:

I have heard that some of the wildfires may have even reached the property of the Los Alamos National Laboratory facility. I would imagine that there is a lot of old radioactive material around that facility considering the number of experiments that have occurred there over the years. I will keep my eyes on this story as the world's nuclear horror year continues!

Los Alamos National Laboratory activated its Emergency Operations Center and announced it would be closed Monday. The blaze had spread to within a mile of the lab's southwest boundary.
